Abstract

original image

A novel technique was developed for preparing encoded multicolour microparticles based on the self-assembly of bacteria and conjugated polymer nanoparticles (CPNs) by a very simple and time-saving manner. These bacteria–CPNs microparticles show multicolor emissions by tuning FRET efficiencies among CPNs under single excitation wavelength and can be successfully applied for cell imaging and optical barcoding.
